Let's tidy up the bathroom together, and at the same time use the remnants of cosmetics with benefit.

Old cream for ... leather bag and shoes

They also do not interfere from time to time "soften."

Body oil - for dry hair ends

Body oil is not for everyone. In addition, it leaves an unpleasant "oil film" on the skin. What to do if you were given such an oil, but you don’t want to throw it out or give it away?
